Burrata Caprese Salad “Sandwiches” with a Garlic and Chili Inflused Balsamic Reduction

This was a farmers market inspiration that came to me as I was wondering around a little hungover and a lot hungry. Saw the heirloom tomatoes first and was instantly hooked by the visuals. I knew these were destined for my belly. The second thing that popped into my mind was cheese and I headed […]

Asian Style Cole Slaw with Toasted Almonds

When I was a kid I hated cole slaw. I’m not sure what it was, maybe some terrible first experience that had me scarred, but I couldn’t get away from it fast enough. It wasn’t until I started working at a sandwich shop and ended up eating their slaw out of sheer boredom with the […]

Chopped Parsley Salad (Grain Free Tabouleh) with Avocado

Got a ton of parsley and don’t know what to do with it? This parsley salad is perfect to put on a sandwich, a wrap, with pita, with crackers or just on it’s own. It’s super fresh tasting and will last in your fridge for about 5 days. You can also adjust the quantities to […]

Simple Kale Almond Pecorino Salad with a Lemon Shallot Dressing

This salad is really easy to make and really delicious. I could eat it all day in a giant mixing bowl. I may have done that. I don’t always massage my kale mostly out of laziness. It’s always worth it and always better when you do. It breaks it down and makes it easier to […]

Asian Kale Salad with Sriracha Maple Syrup Dressing

 This salad was inspired by a Hawaiin Ahi Poke bowl that I used to eat in Venice when I was eating fish. I took similar flavors just increased all the non-fish ingredients they used to make it with. Toasting the nuts and seeds adds a nice flavor and makes the salad more filling. The dressing […]

Charred Chopped Vegetable Salad

This salad was initially inspired by a salad I had at an Italian restaurant in LA called Cecconi’s. They had this great chopped salad with charred zucchini and I loved the flavor that it brought. I loved it so much that I decided to char everything in this salad that combines veggies from the end […]

Chive Lemon Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is a nice tart complement to any basic mixed greens salad and a great use of extra chives (which if you buy chives, you probably have extra). I used it with mixed greens from the farmers market along with some cherry tomatoes and fresh cucumber. Very simple, but a great side salad […]

Heirloom Tomato and Fennel Salad in a Jar

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m a huge fan of the salad in a jar concept for prepping salad ahead of time and making it easily portable. This simple salad is refreshing and pairs really well with the citrus basil avocado salad dressing I posted up a couple weeks ago. This is […]

Citrus Basil Avocado Salad Dressing with Walnut Oil

I’ve been obsessed with making my own salad dressing ever since I got an immersion blender (highly recommended). It’s super simple, tastes delicious, you have more control health-wise and it’s cheaper. Any other benefits you need? If you don’t have the immersion blender, you can also mix it in a regular blender or a food […]
